Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert looks to continue to grow his resume as he enters his 3rd season in the NFL. After racking up numerous accolades in his rookie season (2020), Herbert kept the pace he set for himself.
In the 2021 season, Herbert was tabbed AFC Offensive player of the week 3 times. His performance led him to his 1st Pro Bowl appearance and earned him a spot in the NFL top 100.
Below, we look at Justin Herbert’s 2022 fantasy football average draft position (ADP) and where you should draft him.
Herbert continues to set the bar higher for himself as seen by his performance in his first 2 NFL seasons. Herbert will be an exciting player to watch as he continues to redefine his own standards on a game-by-game basis.
With Herbert at the stern, the Chargers might find themselves charging into a successful 2022 season.
Justin Herbert’s ADP: 27.22

Herbert has an ADP of 27.22 in redraft leagues, which sets him among the 3rd-round draft picks. Among the Chargers, RB Austin Ekeler (7.50) is the only player to outrank Herbert.
Among wide receivers, Herbert’s ADP puts him 3rd at the position, behind the likes of Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs), and Josh Allen (Buffalo Bills), and slightly ahead of Lamar Jackson (Baltimore Ravens), and Kyler Murray (Arizona Cardinals).

Where should you draft Herbert?
Herbert has the potential to be the league’s best fantasy quarterback, and he’s among the frontrunners for MVP. I wouldn’t reach into the 3rd round for Herbert, who is being taken before the Chargers No. 1 receiver, Keenan Allen.
There just isn’t that much separation between Herbert and the likes of QB Tom Brady and Murray, the former of which had 9 fewer points last season and is being taken in the 5th round. Even Murray averaged just 1.1 fewer fantasy points per game.
Herbert has the weapons, but injury concerns could dampen the outcome of Ekeler’s season, limiting the offense. Herbert has shown dynamic year-over-year improvements, but quarterback is a deep position.
Get Herbert in the 4th round and don’t overpay for his current ADP.
